On the wetlands yesterday May 15th 2019 some possible Pectoral Sandpiper that I would like an opinion on as they are new for me. The tail in flight showed a clear black band with pure white on each side. Two large flocks, so probably migrating through and stopped for a fill-up. My back up camera was having trouble locking focus and it was at long range.

Also one seen by multiple people that couldn't agree on an ID so thought I would run it by the experts here. In riparian woods I had ID as an Indigo Bunting either female or non-breeding male

I believe you have Pec, Semi-p and White rumped sandpipers in the flight shots, but perhaps await confirmation from somebody with more extensive nearctic wader experience than me to confirm. I'd agree your passerine is an Indigo bunting.

Definitely Semipalmated and White-rumped, and I think there are a couple Pectoral as well.

OK, hence my confusion on what I was looking at. As I said, two large flocks and they were close enough together that I took it to all be the same species. All three are new lifers for me and the only ones close enough for me to think I had them right was the Pecs. Now with the guidance I can make out the other two.

Thanks for the help! My Canon 7D mkII is due back from a badly needed internal cleaning tomorrow!
